It even gets trickier when it comes to someones talent...let's say you hear someone sing and you wish you could sing like her...that should be where it ends. You should never let that feeling turn into envy to the point that you put them down. Putting someone down is your way of trying to elevate yourself. I've seen this before and it is not pretty...believe me. And that envy will eventually lead to resentment and anger in you and the envied person.
Do you see how envy can be a poison in your life? It poisons your relationships and eventually you begin to feel like a failure. To show true love, you have to stop those jealous feelings...Love Does Not Envy!
